Illness

Had a great weekend, spent lots of quality time with Katie, wrote a long letter to my cousin in Iraq, and for the most part, knocked out 85% of my Christmas shopping in a matter of two days. Went to bed last night feeling accomplished and pretty proud of myself, while simultaneously gearing up for 5 days of mondo-study sessions for finals week, beginning today.

So I wake up this morning with total body aches.
Pounding headache.
Can't keep my eyes open for the painful throbing in my skull.
Burning up / freezing under a blanket at the same time.
Can hardly stay awake for the pain.

Man, I am glad I have paced myself and planned to spend this week in intense study for my three finals this week. It would have sucked if I had actually not waited until now and had had all that energy and health to assist me in the effort. Here's prayin' for a 24 hour bug.

Also- there was a pretty big earthquake in East Africa today. Not too sick to post about it.

Sorry for you and the earthquake victims. Geez, don't bad things come in ones anymore? Are they always in twos and threes?

Dude,

Sorry to hear you're not doing well. You looked great the other day.

Praying for a speedy recovery and for you doing your best during exam week.

Sincerely,

Dogwood
